Summary
This exciting dual biography tells the epic story of the lives of these two men: parallel lives that paved the way, in a manner unknown to either, for an inevitable clash between two nations -- one red, one white -- fighting for possession of the open prairie
Summary
A dual portrait of the leader of the Oglala Sioux and the general of the U.S. Seventh Cavalry in 1876 cites the battle of June 25th and chronicles the sometimes striking similiarities of the lives of both men
